New California Green Building Standards!

California’s Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen) requires the diversion of at least 65 percent of the construction waste generated during most “new construction” projects (CALGreen Sections 4.408 and 5.408). Please see this table to see what the current requirements are.  Please remember, this does not represent a complete list of requirements and contact your local building department for more information. For more information on CALGreen, see the following questions.
